In this popular work of apologetics, Mark Shea presents a lively and entertaining look at his conversion to Catholicism from Evangelicalism and his discovery of Christian Tradition. As an Evangelical, Shea accepted the principle of Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone) as the basis of faith. Now as a Catholic convert, he skillfully explains how and why Sacred Tradition occupies a central role in divine revelation.
Tracing his own journey of intellectual and spiritual awakening, Shea begins by looking for a rejoinder to those modern-day false prophets who would claim that Scripture itself is not to be trusted, and he ends with his conviction that Tradition, as explained by the Catholic Church, is the only sure guarantee of the truth of the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Saint John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis have made it clear that Divine Mercy is at the very center of the Christian faith. In this talk, best-selling author Vinny Flynn shares his 7 Secrets of Divine Mercy, and Christ’s message of love for each of us, and for the whole world.
The Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds are prayers most Catholics take for granted. We pray them by rote when we say the rosary or go to Mass—often without thinking about or fully understanding what we’re saying.
Providing you with this understanding is what The Faith for Beginners is all about. It’s a fascinating romp through the history of the Creeds, closely examining what we believe and why—with references to Scripture, the Church Fathers, and Church councils.
You’ll learn about heresies, persecutions, and theological disagreements that forced the Church to more carefully define our beliefs and add them to the Creeds. Here’s some of what you’ll discover in the pages of The Faith for Beginners:
- Where the world creed comes from and what it means
- Why the Catholic Church has a creed while many other religions don’t
- Four crucial functions served by the Creed
- Why the Creed was so vital to the building of the Church
- Seven common objections to the Creed—and how to answer each one
